One day Ion, a 75 year old Romanian man, accidentally receives a Medal of Honor for some 'heroic' actions back in WW2, times he barely remembers. The medal forces Ion to reconsider his whole life. Maybe he wasn't all the time a loser. Maybe his life has a meaning. Maybe he means something to his family.Written by
about confusion. about illusions. about the conflict between generations. and, maybe, about the purpose of life after many, too many gray years. a film about happiness. and the small things who create it. a bitter-sweet story. like the life. short, a Romanian story. like many others. Victor Rebengiuc in a remarkable role. and the scene with Ion Iliescu who remains the axis of comments about the political differences between themes. a film about a simple fact who has strange significance for an old man hoping in the second chance. and about the cruel truth. a film about making history. and about the shadows of the past. and nothing else.
